Parcel delivery firms: who are the best and worst?

Parcel delivery firms: who are the best and worst?

With the festive season nearly here, parcel delivery firms are zipping around the UK helping out the big man in the red suit. Yet sadly parcel delivery horror stories abound - ranging from no-shows to “they threw the goods over the fence” or “they lied that we weren't in”.

So it’s time for our annual poll to work out who are the good guys and who are the cowboys...

Please rate your experience with each of these firms DURING THE LAST YEAR (don’t rate if you haven’t experienced their service).

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
